, the amateur hour headlines are rolling in. once again, questioning speaker john boehner's ability to control his troops. six months ago, republicans embarrassed the gentleman from ohio by refusing to back his plan b. debt deal. six months later, speaker boehner is now so accustomed to rumors regarding his impending dismissal, he is making jokes about it. >> the representative said you would bring immigration reform to the floor without the support of the conference and you would lose your job. do you think that's accurate? >> maybe. >> in an interview with cnbc, boehner acknowledged that getting stand in the back is, hey, it's just part of the gig. >> as a speaker, i take a lot of hits. i get a lot of hatchets thrown at my back every day. listen, it comes with the territory. >> the continual backstabbing and frontal assaults prompted one democratic aide to tell the "huffington post" no wonder he smokes. but the national review observed, the honey badger that is the house gop don't care. >> oh, the honey badgers are just crazy! >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist and msnbc politi

, the set backs are greater than the step forwards. yesterday house speaker boehner reflected the bill's uncertain fate in the house when he told reporters that he would not bring the bill to the floor without support from a majority of his party. >> any immigration reform bill that is going to go into law ought to have a majority of both parties' support if we're really serious about making that happen. and so i don't see any way of bringing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn't have the majority support of republicans. >> now boehner has violated the so-called pastor rool. the majority of the majority support a bill in order to bring it to a vote three times over the last few months. some republicans have warned boehner that if he allows a vote for the immigration bill, it might cost him his speakership. on monday representative dana rorbacher sounded that warning call. >> if speaker boehner moves forward and permits this to come to a vote even though the majority of republicans in the house, and that's if they do, oppose whatever it is that's coming to a vote, he should be r

vote they would need that might be required to provide speaker john boehner the cover he needs to bring up a similar bill in the house. this morning, a border security breakthrough which may go a long way to doing that. we're learning new details. two republicans details of tennessee, john hoeven of north dakota, they're expected to unveil an amendment that has bipartisan buy-in from the gate and could pave the way for a significant number of senators to support a final bill. senator graham teels eteased th announcement last night. >> i don't know what's going to happen, but we're on the verge of doing something dramatic on the border. and if it happens, it'll be due to hoeven and corker and a lot of our colleagues. if we pull it off, it will be the most dramatic effort i've seen since i've been in congress to secure the border. >> according to new details provided to nbc by senate aide, the agreement the senators are calling a border surge is expected to double the size of the boarder patrol and require 700 miles of border fencing. the group is also compromised on a series of other iss
for speaker john boehner. politico says this, quote, someone in house leadership screwed up again, the defeat of the farm bill shows how massively dysfunctional the house and its leadership have become. what does the failure of house leadership to get that farm bill passed, what does that tell you about the future of immigration reform and other important legislation as well? i.e. the budget? >> well, let's put -- let's take the issue. the issues are individual issues. and i think we have to -- we have to look at it from that perspective. however, you don't take a bill to the floor unless you have the votes. and i don't care what the piece of legislation is. you need to calculate the number of votes that you have. and if you take a look at yesterday's numbers with regard to the republicans, it's interesting to note that 61 republican members voted for the most draconian cuts to the snap program. the same 61 voted to -- voted against the bill. so in that respect this bill didn't go far enough for them in terms of the cuts they wanted to make. the democrats on the other hand were united in the
it and they accept the tradeoff. >> the leaker edward is a hero, house speaker boehner thinks he's a trader. what about you charles? >> he hasn't gone to trial yet. but in a non-legal sense he's a trader, of course he is. if you had everier person in the army and intelligence deciding on their own what ought to be told the world and whatnot, you have no army and no intelligence. there is a certain obligation you take on when you enter the service. if you are disi solutioned you don't act on your own in a society of law. you go to the congress, you go to a lawyer. you try to get your story out in a way that doesn't as you say give away the family jewels. and what is he doing in hong kong? is is a paragon of human rights. in 1997 it became a sovereign propty of china. i'm not sure who he is or why he's doing this. >> article three of the constitution defines treezen as giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the united states. do his actions meet that test? >> as charles says he hasn't been tried yet. i think there is too much we don't know about this young man. it is peculiar that he ends up in h
to the floor and watches it go down in flames. i'll tell you why what's bad for john boehner is good for the country. >>> plus bailouts of struggling casinos? it is also something that is totally happening. we begin tonight with a truly rare bit of genuine progress from congress. excellent news that nonetheless has me seething with anger. here's what's happening that's great news and infuriating. making sure 11 million immigrants are given a road to citizenship is trying to pass a bill by a huge margin in the senate. they are called the gang of eight and the reason they think they need the huge margin victory is to put pressure on house speaker john boehner to bring the legislation to the house floor even though it it will almost certainly not have the support of a majority of house republicans. so that's the game plan. the goal is get 70 votes in the senate, a goal that has seemed, well, further away by the day lately. when one of the bills architects, marco rubio, i see you, started flirting with killing in. in order to stabilize and further build support from their side of the the
, of course the republican party has turned itself over and john boehner has turned the republicans over to the extremist. remember trent franks from arizona, the author of this bill. trent franks, who at first refused -- this is just last week. we talked about it -- refused to allow an amendment that says, well, a woman's a victim of rape could still have an abortion. trent frank said no, there is no need for that. right? because -- echoing -- oh i am blanking. todd aiken from missouri if a woman has been raped her body knows it was not legitimate sex and it was not a legitmat pregnancy. trent frank said there was very low incidence of women who are raped getting pregnant when the numbers are that some 30,000 victims of rape in the united states get pregnant every year. so trent franks didn't know what the hell he was talking about. one extreme is he is the author of this bill. yesterday, on the committee -- get this. michael burgess. never heard of him before but he is a republican congressman from texas. he said there is another reason to be against ab
as speaker -- house speaker john boehner plans to huddle later today with members of the house hispanic caucus, that meeting just a day after he said that he'd need this to bring an overhaul plan to a vote -- >> i don't see any way of bringing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn't have a majority support of republicans. >> so, from the house to the senate where republicans are jockeying to ad amendments to the bipartisan plan that was hammered by the immigration eight, a new congressional budget office report is giving that plan added street cred, projecting that it would cut the government's budget hole by 197 million over the next decade. >> this report is a huge momentum boost for immigration reform. it debunks the idea that immigration reform is anything other than a boon to our economy and robs the bill's opponents of one of their last remaining arguments. >>> all right, let's dig down on this and joining me now for more is mark murray. mark, it's good to have you here. we know from the lead figure on the immigration gang of eight has been senator marco rubio, however he's

mean for immigration, and will strong senate republican support for the gang of eight force boehner's hand? guys, this farm bill upset was not good news, not confidence inspiring if you believe that some kind of immigration reform should come to be. nancy pelosi, i have to agree with her, she was right. this was amateur hour. her democrats are not spared in that assessment. they promised 40 votes. they only came to the floor with 24. that 40 wouldn't have brought the bill to fruition alone, but could have maybe tipped the scales for a few more gop votes. so they also didn't deliver and seem to have problems counting votes. and to me, it just seems like this is why compromise for the sake of compromise is a real loser. there are reasons to compromise, but compromise alone can't be one of them. boehner brought a bill to the floor that no one liked, right? republicans in the house thought it didn't cut enough. democrats in the house thought it cut too much. he should have provided, presented a bill that at least his base was going to support if only to avoid the embarrassment. this is

,500. and who is their leader of the super villain? john boehner, the speaker of the house! you know, it might be fun to think he's the zod to president obama's superman. but, really, we think he's a little more like gru, you know him, from "despicable me," grand ambitions, minions he can never really keep in line. speaker boehner brought the house's version of the $940 billion farm bill to a vote on thursday, expecting to it pass, and it failed with 62 republicans voting against it. the vote was a shock, as usually house speakers don't bring major controversial bills to the floor unless they know they're going to pass. republicans tried to blame it on democrats, saying they failed to deliver the 40-votes promise. and house majority leader eric cantor even said he was, quote, extremely disappointed that democrats chose to derail years of bipartisan work. but even if gop leadership had those votes, the bill still would have failed. now, i certainly don't envy john boehner's job, corralling house republicans actually does seem a lot like trying to rely on an army of fictional, nonverbal minions

after fertilization. earlier today, house speaker john boehner expressed his confidence in the bill's passage. >> a vast majority of the american people believe in the substance of this bill and so do i. i believe it will pass with a broad bipartisan majority. >> of course, the president threatened to veto such a bill if it were ever to make it past the senate which is it most certainly won't. never mind. speaker boehner had other tackles to attend to such as trying to close the door on immigration reform. >> i don't see any way of bringing an immigration bill to the floor that doesn't have a majority support of republicans. the senate bill is weak on border security. i think the internal enforcement mechanisms are weak and the triggers are almost laughable. >> speaking of laughable, i have to go back to this because earlier today, congresswoman marshall blackburn tried her best to claim that the doomed abortion bill currently occupying the house of representatives is anything more than a pathetic pander in an interview with my colleague craig melvin. >> is this purely pandering? >>
that the leadership was surprised. the house leadership. leadership should never be surprised. >> brown: john boehner. >> eric cantor, the house majority leader voted for an amendment-- a punitive amendment on food stamps-- that he had been warned would cost them the coalition. and then he turned around and said it was all nancy pelosi fault. they lost 62 house republicans. you can't lose that many on your own side on a procedural vote as to whether you're going to bring up the legislation. it was a terrible blow to the speaker, a terrible blow to the leadership. i just think it's -- and to the coalition. it had always been a great coalition between urban liberals and rural conservatives that had worked together to pass the farm bill in the past and that is obviously not the case. >> one of the interesting reasons is not the case because even rural voters have decided the money is for us but we'd rather cut spending. so debt as an issue, even in rural america, the money going to rural america, people would rather cut spending than continue with their subsidies. >> brown: but the question of what's ha
serious questions about the immigration bill after last night's stunning defeat for speaker boehner and house republicans. they felt they had to vote to pass the farm bill but failed. and it comes just as immigration appears to have huge momentum coming out of the senate. there it looks like 70 votes is now possible for a deal. the break through came when the gang of eight joined corcoran and hogan on border security. and 15 republican senators could sign with nearly all the democrats to pass immigration reform. >> we secure the border so we are not back in the situation where we have millions of illegal immigrants in this country ten years down the road. >> but that's the senate. back to the house where speaker boehner's miscalculation on the farm bill may not bode well for more complicated negotiations like immigration. republicans blame democrats. democrats bash the gop. >> what is happening on the floor today was a demonstration of major amateur hour. >> it is pathetic that the republican whip team would be trying to point fingers at others when what you see is their latest inab
their argument based on computations and two, speaker john boehner says he won't bring immigration to the house floor absent a majority of republican supporters. is that going to kill the bill and let the right wing of the republican party take control of the whole party? anyway, the republican resistance imabrasion reform was tarl for john oliver of "the daily show." >> how will they manage to make this bill bipartisan? because it's a win-win. good for republicans because they think it will win them hispanic votes. and good for democrats because it will actually win them hispanic votes. >> that is really well said. that and more in the sideshow. this is "hardball," the place for politics. >>> i've been saying it for a long time. president obama should have a big jobs program to fix the country's roads and bridges and build things. today the group transportation for america released a new study that finds one in nine bridges in this country is rated structurally deficient. that means they're in poor enough condition some could become dangerous and could be forced to close without substantial re

to it but house speaker john boehner has said on multiple occasions saying we're moving ahead on our own immigration measures. they have voted on measures on everify and more border security amendments. the house has their own ideas and they're faction in the gop who will never get on board to the path to citizenship and john boehner said i'm not bringing anything to the floor that doesn't get a majority of my caucus on board. >> you have to wonder if those who oppose this are looking down the road. if it didn't get passed by the house, interpret what happens with the latino voters moving on. >> they nooned that we need to do better outreach. the problem is that works on big national scale, on a presidential election because they are fast growing group that care about this issue. in these individual districts it's not that important and i think the members understand that. if this doesn't pass, i think you'll see the democrats and president obama try to use this next year in the congressional elections as an issue to really win more democratic seats. down the road in 2016 you see people
